Antioxidant loss in Hot-Water Polyolefin Pipes - Experimental Data and Modelling [PE]

 

Outstanding Applications # 1992 Eindhoven

Polyolefin pipes subjected to extensive hoop stresses fail in a ductile manner (stage I). At lower stresses failure is brittle and may in certain cases be preceded by degradation of the polymer (stage 111). Reviewed in this paper are the changes in polymer structure and antioxidant concentration profiles preceding the stage I11 failure of hot water polyolefin pipes. A diffusionlreaction model for the antioxidant loss is presented and applied to a few selected cases.

The premature failure of polyethylene pipes in contact with high chlorine and chlorine dioxide, used as residual disinfectants in drinking water distribution, remains an area of concern for water companies particularly in regions where temperatures are regularly or seasonally high. Multiple factors can amplify the...

The water industry has used renovation techniques to extend the life of its assets for a number of years, beginning with sliplining in the 1970s. These techniques have evolved with time and the use of an interactive liner, where the liner withstands only some of the service loads, with the remainder borne by the host...

While guaranteed lifetimes of pressure pipes in use is roughly 50 years, it is commonly accepted that a well designed and manufactured HDPE/MDPE pressure pipe would last as long as 100 years without failures. With ever-growing world population and intensifying pollution, it has become increasingly difficult supplying...

The life of a stabilized polyolefin hot-water pipe may be divided into three phases denoted as Regimes A, B and C. Regimes A and B are characterized by different antioxidant consumption mechanisms. Regime C is defined as the time period from the stan of the thermooxidative attack on the polymer itself to the failure...
